Temperature-controlled cabinets for the storage of commercially-produced monoclonal antibodies. Monoclonal antibodies promise great potential in the diagnosis & treatment of disease. They are made through the fusion of a normal antibody- producing cell (a lymphocyte) with a rapidly- multiplying tumour cell. The resulting "hybridoma" cells are multiplied in stages, in fermenter vessels of increasing size, to produce large numbers of genetically identical copies, each secreting the antibody produced by the original lymphocyte.
